A laborious process from fruit to EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

avatar
(Edited)

This happened a month ago when I was picking some olives, a few details of how it is .. you could say hard and a little hard to get that wonderful olive oil

img_0.3528433073691719.jpg

Before starting, the net should be well placed under the tree

img_0.46658218638550003.jpg

when work begins and this means that with a tool like a fork they shake, they shake the branches and separate the fruit from the tree

img_0.5904010685950125.jpg

so they fall into the net

img_0.3989098586888008.jpg

fast and fly from that tool shaker

img_0.16434467863933333.jpg

there are plenty of canopies and they are tall

img_0.9110166579820289.jpg

the net must be moved and emptied frequently

img_0.843101109085891.jpg

beautiful old trees 200-300 years

img_0.4018838643736172.jpg

and its fruit is beautiful

img_0.1722230127455989.jpg

the collected fruits are placed on the group and the cleaning of the fruits is started

img_0.4735915097205698.jpg

among the fruits there are branches, twigs and leaves that need to be removed from the fruit as much as possible to be cleaner in order to be of good quality later.

img_0.7302108796699678.jpg

img_0.7081481032781646.jpg

this is the amount of leaves and branches that are thrown out

img_0.029297236090364758.jpg

and puts in baskets fruits with few leaves

img_0.10876547006165031.jpg

further the olives are collected in a group and cleaned

img_0.07858180924094485.jpg

while cleaning, you will come across some mushrooms

img_0.6309551709699415.jpg

this is a beautiful sea view in Rovinj

img_0.0033000660332226815.jpg

the moon looks nice very clear

img_0.191823139172577.jpg

the view of the sea and the islands of Gemini to me look like two beautiful tits are just far away so they are barely visible

img_0.6796057889489335.jpg

here next to the sun is X maybe id that's where the rainbow moves

img_0.29497082996819596.jpg

so the moon is premiered because it is already a little too late and it is still visible even if it is day

img_0.9697210281990624.jpg

on one plot I came across old openings water tanks similar to indoor pools that had openings like this to store drinking water - rainwater

img_0.7217489713638919.jpg

This is an old grinding wheel round stone grinding wheel

img_0.6388001343303082.jpg

inside, water and a grinding wheel were placed, the stone was must, it used to be like this, the carrier was carved in stone, I don't know the age of this, but it's a couple of hundred

img_0.13838548408320508.jpg

this is a stone erta which was perhaps a fence holder there used to be a metal construction and cast lead to fix it so that it would not fall out and it held well

img_0.9639213804492884.jpg

it all had to end up thrown in the trash but someone has the will and desire to collect and store such things so they can live on

img_0.9872783345279754.jpg

The environment is beautiful The nature is great

img_0.1947631306924053.jpg

img_0.1899989292915433.jpg

view from hill to hill

img_0.37635169047444506.jpg

this one olive tree is quite old it could be 400 years old and it holds up well like a young man

img_0.27808679334289793.jpg

img_0.6864928556143232.jpg

this fig with leaves that sorema fa leaves the branches with these colors for parachute and decoration

img_0.9565761460036882.jpg

Gives a nice atmosphere in the shade of the canopy

img_0.17293385545283416.jpg

this is what hay looks like when it rests a little in the shade

img_0.03278209860041275.jpg

but when done one should throw oneself on one's knees and

img_0.018661101221790447.jpg

and separate those leaves from the fruit

img_0.23028029373408493.jpg

of course and rescue animals various spiders and like this grasshopper

img_0.8781393089407762.jpg

a small view from the hill to the olive grove

img_0.6889709718714037.jpg

and the sky as it darkens

img_0.8226893269974561.jpg

on this side in the west there is still sun

img_0.3316373345353873.jpg

continued into the morning

img_0.20613169568408835.jpg

to make canopies with fruits

img_0.06386024289387544.jpg

img_0.4175075713697892.jpg

waiting to be shaken and picked up

img_0.9918372246938267.jpg

put in the net on the pile

img_0.7573265210164442.jpg

when the nets are released - cleaned of fruit, they should be moved to another place

img_0.013891671742906215.jpg

a small tiny transparent white snowflake came to my mind

img_0.992125365029714.jpg

this is what I thought at first glance when it has two - three millimeters in size and when the dream looked better it also has transparent wings

img_0.6600666871427661.jpg

that little snowflake is a moth fly (Lat. Phyllaphis fagi)

img_0.4503087405951972.jpg

these brown spots on the skin of the hand are small dusts of earth and hair and its shadow

img_0.16154645158737935.jpg

a little back hair can be seen here

img_0.6753036769913096.jpg

details of the tiny part of the chest and the little head

img_0.058739667351471056.jpg

here a few foot details

img_0.11980080689461504.jpg

I see this flying insect for the first time and these are my only photos of it with details and this is the last and a little clearer of that miniature animal with hair

img_0.5546532197156607.jpg

this insect is predominantly seen on agricultural land

img_0.4900362668022648.jpg

he's fast and the only one I've ever seen

img_0.08311867739687649.jpg

the hard wing also has these beautiful red lines on the side and is called (Lat. Chrysolina sanguinolenta )

img_0.5727328405766899.jpg

And it was time to go to the oil mill one in the town of Rovinj, a place di from the fruits of Olives create oil

img_0.12734851309861314.jpg

when a big basket is brought then it is weighing to know how much someone has brought

img_0.7015853325602981.jpg

like these baskets coming from various surrounding places of olive groves that have been harvested and awaiting processing

img_0.29168207093816595.jpg

there is a forklift that lifts this basket and empties it into a hopper

img_0.3277713762826541.jpg

this is a funnel where you start cleaning the fruit

img_0.045609332485465906.jpg

when he emptied everything inside

img_0.7013862881017.jpg

they begin to move moving along the conveyor belt

img_0.4500786041972893.jpg

which grabs them and runs them on the fan

img_0.4838037256625507.jpg

where it first separates the leaves and twigs by blowing

img_0.8496930028515312.jpg

which is stored in this mesh space

img_0.14717312453539408.jpg

there are all the blown out leaves that do not need to be processed

img_0.20490709701323537.jpg

after blowing, the crushed and damaged fruits are washed and washed

img_0.3914398966887067.jpg

washed fruits are processed in this area

img_0.4042330633920222.jpg

these barrels 1, 2, 3 there is a process. First the fruits are ground and the ground mixture goes in order

img_0.4462310139006463.jpg

somehow it is cooked and processed inside while doing this we can sit a little on the bar stool

img_0.14472057413528483.jpg

after coming out of these barrels it passes through this plant which somehow mixes and mashes the ground olive pate

img_0.7471665765768057.jpg

then the mixture is passed into this vessel where the solid oil is doubled

img_0.6411387698695932.jpg

more and faster oil leaks from this tube, but now I've come to the end of squeezing, so it's nicely gently leaking and dripping into that funnel

img_0.5449281564178081.jpg

which has a discharge into the transfer container EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

img_0.07064598142912677.jpg

It’s a process done so I went outside a bit and saw a nice decoration in front of the door

img_0.5891993987353834.jpg

nice to see

img_0.5696903735619774.jpg

has a beautiful high stone wall in the old way made and lit.

img_0.4009638952138013.jpg

there is also a tractor in the yard

img_0.8127626879242078.jpg

this looks to me like the rest of the ground olive hard mass that is now used to make compost

img_0.4572392584600457.jpg

there is also my shadow

img_0.9442023424227298.jpg

Slightly lighted dry olive pate .And ready to eat .

img_0.3657240515214861.jpg

For now, this is the end of the first part in this area of ​​Rovinj, where I took a few photos in a short walk with work ,and typed a few words to you on HIVE to be presented to you both from harvesting Olives to
EXTRA OF VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

img_0.15725331274982193.jpg

This is the end of this walk and of course there is more to come. For now, I wish you a pleasant day until the next post .

To be continued...

THE END

It was nice to see the processes involved in getting that delicious oil out of those olives. Beautiful photographs all around. I have one olive tree that is just now starting to take off. I will be adding a few more this spring to start a small grove.
